Clone Drone In The Danger Zone Preview

In the days of ancient Rome, slaves were pitted against Gladiators and creatures from exotic lands to engage in mortal combat for the entertainment of thousands at the Coliseum. Today, as with many things, we have robots do the job for us. Clone Drone in the Danger Zone is basically the cooler videogame version of those real-life Roman games, and it’s a grand time.

WTF Marcus has an unlockable ‘They f***ed up my tomatoes’ voice line


Alone Together: Fragmentation And The Forever Game

Everyone’s got a game that they’ve played for a long time. Maybe forever. StarCraft II is one of mine. I play other things too, but recently I’ve found myself spending a lot of time in this familiar place. Each time I fire it up, I ask myself the same question: “Why this game?

NBA 2K21 Review

In Search Of Next-Gen Writers

HIGH  The on-court mechanics are more player-controlled than ever
